Default Car Pulls to Right When Braking or WOT

Ok i kinda noticed this before the brake job today(and boy was she in need, the rotors were so grooved and bad, my car shimmied from a 5 mph slow down stop, it was bad) but now i really noticed it and mom did to, whenever i brake i can feel and see the front of the car shift to the right, and on hard acceleration or WOT, i have to kinda pull the wheel to the left some cause the car is pulling the other way, what could be/ is causing this? Please advise

New brake job? You need to give a couple days or more for the pads to bed to the rotors. The RF is probably dragging. If the problem persists, You'll want to carefully watch rotor wear or pull that one apart for an inspect.

Also look for collapsed brake lines to the calipers.

What did you replace when you did the brake job?

Ok, assuming you did the pads and rotors, look at possibly replacing the RF caliper and/or brake line.

The pull to the right upon WOT is torque steer. Don't worry about that. Nothing you can do.

Agree with the pack on the brakes.

I'd pull it back apart to clean and lube the caliper slides and pins. They can cause the caliper to not release. This should be part of every disc brake job.

If you still feel the issue then, look to the caliper piston and hose.
